New National Childcare Scheme

New National Childcare Scheme


The National Childcare Scheme is dedicated to ensuring that families have access to truly accessible, affordable, quality childcare.

The Scheme will open in November 2019. It will replace all previous targeted childcare programmes with a single, streamlined and user-friendly Scheme to help parents meet the cost of quality childcare.

Online applications for the National Childcare Scheme will open in November 2019, with the first subsidy payments flowing to providers from November 2019. A paper based, postal application will be available from January 2020.

Subsidies will be available for families with children aged between 24 weeks and 15 years who are attending any participating Tusla registered childcare service, including any Tusla registered childminder.
